The California Department of Public Health and the State of California's Division of Occupational Safety and Health (CAL/OSHA) recently released two important documents: Industry Guidance for Real Estate Transactions and a COVID-19 General Checklist for Real Estate Transactions.
We encourage you to read through both documents as they contain important protocols on topics including property showings.

Note: The guidelines set standards and procedures for the showing of properties. The existing State and County Orders regulate when and under what circumstances it is lawful to allow entry into a property in the course of a real estate transaction. The local requirements are to show the property “virtually” unless a virtual tour is not possible. (See the bottom of page 27 in the FAQS FOR SAN FRANCISCO HEALTH ORDERS for more details.)
